Hemingway and the Art of Dialogue

Along with his awards and persona, Hemingway is also famous for his literary style, particularly his approach to dialogue. Complementing the PBS Hemingway documentary by Ken Burns and the corresponding KCTS 9 virtual event Hemingway: Misogynistic or Misunderstood? this course will examine the characteristics of Hemingway’s dialogue in stories like “Hills Like White Elephants” and beyond. In addition, we’ll explore a few techniques and methodologies for strengthening the dialogue in our own works as well.

INSPIRATION FROM WILDLIFE

What I miss from being homeless is sleeping outside among the trees and the wildlife, and having the warmth of the sun greet you in the morning as you wake up. There is nothing like it. I witnessed a lot of great things, from a snow owl swooping down on me, thinking I might be its next meal and leaving disappointed that I was not a rat, to a skunk sneaking into my tent while I slept and snacking on my cream cheese, I have a lot of nature stories to tell. What I am fascinated with these whales is the bubble-net feeding. The circular pattern is something that captives me.
